Publisher's Summary

James Dearsley’s wife thought he had lost his mind when he announced his intention to become a beekeeper. But like many interested in the self-sufficient lifestyle, he loved gardening and growing vegetables on his allotment and the old romantic in him had idealistic notions of teaching his little boy where honey came from, so he set himself what seemed a reasonable goal: to get, in a year’s time, just one jar of honey.
Also known as 'The Surrey Beekeeper', Dearsley started the Beginner Beekeeper's page on Facebook - now the biggest online community of beekeepers - and has also released a beekeeping DVD.

Just right for a novice beekeeper

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I guess if they were into Bees. Then yes, as I identified with everything that he mentioned . . and his fears.

Who was your favorite character and why?


Have you listened to any of Daniel Philpott’s other performances? How does this one compare?

no others

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Wont spoil story, but at the end. This is my first year of bee keeping and this is my wish.

Any additional comments?

For someone that is just getting into beekeeping or thinking about it as there are many moments that I can relate to.
